Angela Bassett

Angela Bassett has played LAPD patrol sergeant Athena Grant-Nash for four seasons and counting, and we couldn't imagine the series without her. In real life, the 63-year-old actress has been married to her husband, Courtney B. Vance, for over two decades. The pair met in 1980 and later tied the knot in 1997. They share 16-year-old twins, Bronwyn and Slater Vance.

Peter Krause

Playing Athena's husband, Robert "Bobby" Nash, is actor Peter Krause who is also known for his roles in The Catch and Parenthood. He was previously in a relationship with Gilmore Girls star Lauren Graham before they split back in 2021. They first met in 1995 when they appeared alongside each other in a sitcom and struck up a romance on the set of the first season of Parenthood. Prior to that, Peter was with actress Christine King, with whom he shares a son named Roman. Peter has yet to reveal if he is currently dating anyone.

Oliver Stark

Fan favourite Evan 'Buck' Buckley is played by British actor Oliver Stark. The 30-year-old actor was thought to be dating Marvel actress Hannah Gottesman, but it has since been rumoured that the pair have split. The couple first met on Instagram and made things official after Oliver relocated from London to LA. Opening up about their relationship, he told People: "I came here for about three weeks and then never went home. We met at the airport and moved in together."

Aisha Hinds

Aisha Hinds, who plays paramedic Henrietta Wilson on the series, tied the knot with her partner, Silky Valentine back in May 2022 in a gorgeous Grenada ceremony. Talking to Essence Magazine, she said of their special engagement: "That definitely was a day of unexpected joy. He completely surprised me. He did it on my birthday. Because of 2020, I had no plans to have a plan. I was pulling back the plans."

Kenneth Choi

Sadly, not much is known about Howie actor Kenneth Choi's personal life. The 49-year-old actor prefers to keep his personal life out of the spotlight and doesn't even use social media! He also has never publically discussed his past relationships, meaning his dating history is a mystery.

Athena's ex-husband Michael Grant is played by Rockmond Dunbar. The actor has been married twice. He first tied the knot in 2003 to Ivy Holmes, but the couple split just three years later in 2006.
